The food is amazing, be prepared for HUGE portions! We struggled to have a conversation as the noise level is high but I would definitely go back!
Great service and huge servings. Food was very good !
Jonathan was our waiter and we absolutely enjoyed his presentation! He made sure we had everything we needed and his recommendations were perfect and as described! Thank you Jonathan for making this night memorable and for making sure we enjoyed our meal selections! We’ll be back to see you and to eat well again and soon!😉
Huge portions so come hungry. I ate 1/2 of my entree to save room for dessert and still couldn’t finish dessert because the tiramisu was enough for 4 people!!
Service was great! Food was great! Well worth the price. I would recommend to anyone and I will be back.
We love mamas. This place is fantastic.
If I ever want a piece of chocolate cake I am going here just for it. Everything was delicious and we had a lovely time here.
Been going to Mama Ricottas for almost 10 years. The food is always been great and consistent. The staff is usually on point and the atmosphere is cozy. We keep coming back because we really love it.
Always excellent food and great service. Nice spot for lunch or early dinner. The gym in the same area makes parking a challenge but if you can schedule strategically like an early or late lunch or early dinner it shouldn’t be an issue. Worth it wherever you park!
Consistently very good, as always. Food is delicious and service to match.
Great as usual. Felice (sp?) was a wonderful server. I brought someone who was new to Charlotte who was very pleased and is looking forward to returning.
Fabulous food as always
My "Go to" place for Italian food. Never disappoints.
Excellent!! Will be back soon!
This was our first time and we’ll be back! The best Italian food we’ve had in Charlotte! The service was amazing and our server Ben was great! He was awesome with the kids and made sure we had a great time! The service was probably the best we’ve had in Charlotte as well!
Absolutely incredible dinner, along with great service.
Had a great dinner. The service was very attentive & the atmosphere was great also. Will visit again soon.
Good food, loud and environment but still enjoyable.
Service was just ok, food was a little expensive for the quality.
Excellent service by Tristan. Angelhair pasta with tomato basil sauce and meatballs was wonderful. Portions are generous.
It was a very busy Friday night so we’d hoped that reservations for 8 p.m. would mean we wouldn’t have a long wait to be seated, but we waited quite a while.
After being seated, service was quick. There’s certainly not a “relaxing” feeling to dining here on such a busy night, but that’s not unusual or unexpected. While waiting or walking through this busy establishment, stay out of the way of the staff that will come zooming past you! This team is fast as they deliver some of the best meals Charlotte has to offer!
I think there may be some communication glitches between the reservation service and the restaurant staff.
Excellent wait staff!
The Penne à la vodka and braised short rib gnocchi were phenomenal
Met a friend for lunch, glad I made a reservation as the room became busy. The waitress was attentive without hovering. I had the Chicken Parm sandwich with side salad, my friend had the chopped salad.
Our lunch was served quickly, served hot and tasted delicious. We love Mama's
Thanks for the feedback Mike; we appreciate your continued patronage! Hope to see you soon!
Delicious food! Chicken Parm and goat cheese appetizer is a must!
The service was excellent. Went for my anniversary and the wife completely loved it.
Everything was wonderful
Great Food. Great Service. Very Friendly Atmosphere. My family loved it. We will return.
We were out with friends and really enjoyed our dinner!!
Our food did not have much flavor. We got the veal marsala and the veal was thick cut and not tender and there was very little marsala taste to the dish. No amount of salt and pepper seemed to help. We also got a gluten-free vegetarian pasta dish. It was nice that they had a gluten-free option but, again, the dish had very little taste. Also the stated vegetarian dish had a piece of chicken in it which was unpleasant for the person having that dish. Other people at the table had similar complaints about their meals as well.
This was our first visit to Mama Ricotta's since moving to Charlotte and IT WILL NOT be our last. We brought family from Scottsdale Arizona with us. The meatballs and grilled vegetables got five stars. The salad with grilled chicken and Lasagna were delicious as well. I had the Penne pasta with broccoli and chicken in a light lemon parmesan sauce. It was to die for. We cannot wait to bring our son and his family here for dinner.
So many issues with reservations. Our spouses could not attend because of reservation restrictions with Open Table and also hostess staff. Overall management went above and beyond for my friends birthday.
The hostess was horrible and rude. Very unfriendly and mute and not very accommodating.
We love eating here. They have great flavor in all their meals. As a celiac the gluten free choices in a lot of restaurants are limiting and flavorless. Mama Ricotta's delivers with awesome flavor, kind service, and creativity. When guests are enjoying their amazing goat & marscapone dip with bread they are quick to offer me some dippable veggies. Would I love bread YES but so much better than watching everyone else enjoy. Yum and will keep coming back.
This was our first visit. We were celebrating our anniversary. Excellent experience!
You have to go to Mamma Ricottas. It has such a great vibe. Def make a reservation b/c this place is always crowded!!!! Food and service phenomenal. The main portion of the restaurant was a bit loud but we were seated in outdoor area (no fear it's still cool during summer in there) and noise level was non existent.
Our reservation was seated 20 minutes past our time, however, we ordered right away and they did a great job getting us in and out to make our show time,
Food was good as always. Service was just ok. Slow to refill drinks. And didn't make any recommendations or ask about appetizers or dessert.
We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary at Mama Ricotta's on a Friday night. We made a reservation online and we were seated within 5 minutes of checking in. The food was absolutely amazing and our server Paige was outstanding. She made awesome recommendations for both food and wine. The tiramisu was the best we have ever had. There were several parties going on around us, but the noise level didn't bother us at all. I can't wait to visit again!
